12. Orange is the New Black

Why not go to a classic? Orange is the New Black was one of Netflix’s first original shows, making it perfect for bingeing! While the show deals with real problems, it’s perfect to watch at night with comedy strategically balancing the serious themes.

Based on a true story, the show takes place in a female jail through the eyes of an out of touch rich white woman, Piper Chapman, gets sent to jail for being named as part of a drug ring. Once she’s in there, she learns about the prison life and is snapped out of her charmed life.

As she begins her jail time, she realizes her ex-girlfriend Alex is also in prison, and she is convinced Alex is the person who implicated Piper. While Piper tries to keep away from her ex, and not stick out in the prison, she runs into many different problems.

This show is perfect for bingeing whether or not you’ve watched it before or not! If you haven’t, then this is a Netflix classic that should absolutely be put on your watch list! If you have, it’s always nice to go back down memory lane and remember all the wild things that happen during Piper’s time in jail. Each season holds its own arc and an important message, and it’s truly one of Netflix’s best works.
